Camera Cleaning

Hamilton is taking several Advanced Placement classes, which means he can also receive college credit for them.  Bring them on. At upwards of $400 a credit hour in Ohio's public universities he can't save himself too much money.

The AP exams are imminent and he's been back to school in the evening for some extra study.  I picked Hamilton up Monday evening from a history review and he had a tee shirt his teacher had distributed.  "He's kinda goofy, Grandma.  We all like him."

The front of the shirt had a handsome young man's photo and said he was running for president in 2012.  The back of the shirt had answers.  One of them could be right if you were stuck on a question.  I laughed all the way home.



Here is the orchid Caroline gave me for my birthday a year ago March,  because I admired her ice cube a week orchid.  It's blooms lasted longer than I can recall, and then around my birthday this year a new spike began growing.  Look at all the buds.



I'm off to Broad Ripple and will bring a camera of pictures and a full show report.  Have a good weekend.

  2. I told my neice when she went to college that I never understood what the English teachers meant when they asked "What is the theme to this story" but as long as she answered "Man's inhumanity to man" it was always the correct answer. She used that when she was stumped on her first English quiz and got an "A".

    Love the sweatshirt!

    1. Susan, if you click on the link in Joanne's post, where she mentions the orchid, it will take you to the post where she explains about using an ice cube to water her plant :)

  17. I had a goofy teacher my senior year. he told the greatest stories. My favorite one was about how he and his buddies used to hang by their knees from a pipe that was under a railroad tressel and scare the drivers of the cars traveling the road underneath the bridge. I saw that bridge got replaced recently...OMG that was 41 years ago!

  19. Dear Joanne, a lovely orchid. Thanks for sharing it with us. Like Hamilton, I want to take some classes beginning this fall. Mine will be at the University of Missouri in Kansas City. I hope to adult classes as a senior citizen and thus save on the fee. I'm really looking forward to this because there's so much I want to learn. Peace.
